Ordinary....Extraordinary Day

It seems like forever since I pulled out my camera and spent time using it, I am missing those days.  I am missing days of routine with a quiet afternoon just to pass the time. Those days seem to be few and far between  lately and I am challenged to keep up with  all of my responsibilities.  I am so use to sharing our special events and photos that I forget to share our ordinary times, realistically most of our times.  However, it occurred to me while I was in the thick of "ordinary" last night cooking dinner that each day, while it may seem ordinary, is truly extraordinary! I feel so blessed that God has entrusted these five souls to me for good keeping and because of that each day is extraordinary.  So here is a little of what "extraordinary" looks like after school at my house....homework, down time, and dinner.

After dinner we had one more extraordinary accomplishment to celebrate.  June's art teacher chose a piece of her art to be displayed at a local art school to celebrate Youth Art Month.  We all headed out after dinner to support June and admire her work....we of course finished our celebration with ice cream!  The big boys headed out to volunteer at school and it was home to finish up with our regular night time routine.


Recently, someone said that my family was not relaxing and they were right....we are not!  We are far from relaxing and that is okay, because, whether a good day or a bad day I would not change or trade raising my big, awesome, loud, loving, family!

Have a great weekend!

I need to remember to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. Some days just feel like survival mode. :)

I love ordinary days! I used to try to capture them once a month...but ordinary days are also busy days so I just gave up. They should be celebrated and enjoyed!

Did you change the blog? It looks great!

I love this little peek into your ordinary day. I never think to photograph things like that. Junes artwork looks great!

Dear Tiffany, for some reason, you have been on my mind all day. I just wanted to let you know that every time you have come to mind I have said a little prayer for you. I love this post! You and I have the same idea! ; )
